Whiteside for Barnes
Does anyone like Bjelica? The Bazemore TPE would cover his contract. That would still leave the Blazers with their MLE and BAE to use.
I like Bazemore, not Bjelica so much. I don't like Barnes at all. Plus, I think Whiteside's next contract might be around $5M/year. Don't think a S&T for a $22M contract is going to happen, especially since our budget to fill 4 roster spots is around $20M.

Then sign Crowder with the MLE.
Again, the budget for 4 roster spots is $20M. You are way overpaying for Gallo. Gallo would compete with Melo for minutes and would end up getting nothing but Melo's leftovers. I do like Crowder, but he isn't a good shooter. Having Crowder on the floor would fuel gameplan's to trap the ball, which Blazers need to avoid.
